WASHINGTON, D.C. - Tomorrow, the Subcommittee on Border and Maritime Security will hold a hearing on authorizing Customs and Border Protection (CBP) and Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).
TUESDAY, April 8 at 10 a.m.
Subcommittee on Border and Maritime Security
Authorizing Customs and Border Protection and Immigration and Customs Enforcement
311 Cannon House Office Building
- Mr. Kevin K. McAleenan, Acting Deputy Commissioner, U.S. Customs and Border Protection, U.S. Department of Homeland Security
- Mr. Daniel D. Ragsdale, Acting Director, Immigrations and Customs Enforcement, U.S. Department of Homeland Security
Subcommittee Chairman Candice Miller (R-MI) on the hearing: "These two agencies help secure the border and investigate cross-border crime, which is critical to our national security. However, since the Department of Homeland Security was created in 2002, they have never been formally authorized by the Congress. Earlier this year, I introduced authorizing language for CBP and ICE that will better define their missions and responsibilities to secure the nation, remove dangerous aliens, investigate cross border criminal activity, and facilitate trade and commerce. Tomorrow, we will hear about how these agencies have evolved and expanded over the years and what authorizations are needed for their respective missions."
